Product Announcements – Half8Fish LLC of Boca Raton, Florida has released Videux, the company’s powerful new organizer, player, and workflow assistant for MacOS. Videux is highly optimized to get tens of thousands of videos organized and ready for editing. Videux is an indispensable tool for stock videographers and people with large video libraries.
With effective organizational features, Videux can handle just about any video collection with ease, tagging them with keywords, ratings, and flags. Videux keeps track of model releases, license agreements, metadata, and much more, making it easy to see at a glance the state of your video library.
Videux: /vdio/ or “vid-oh”
A mashup of the word video and d’eux (meaning “of them”), a word borrowed from our love of New Orleans. While it’s perhaps not proper French, we think this portmanteau is apropos. Easy to use collections make quick work of organizing an edit. Integration with Final Cut Pro X, iMovie, and Premiere Pro makes your workflow faster and easier. A history view shows exactly what has been done with each individual clip.
Optimized specifically for working with video, Videux can deal with very large numbers of video clips. Whether there are 100 or 100,000 clips in your library, Videux can tackle them and make it fast and easy to find just what you’re looking for using the logical, powerful, and intuitive filter-based user interface. A single click duplicate finder means an end to duplicates that waste storage.
As a sleek video player, Videux makes comparing clips, culling, or just plain viewing quick and easy. Fast clip-to-clip movement, fullscreen playback, frame accurate timecode display, multi-speed playback, and a skimming playhead mean the user can find elusive moments in a given clip in no time.
Playlists make it easy to string together multiple clips for viewing or presentation. Playlist clips can be dissimilar in any way – mix clips of different resolution, frame rate, containers/codec – and Videux will happily play them in sequence. Clips can be repeated inside a playlist, and with the loop option and fullscreen playback, Videux becomes a standalone video kiosk.
“Videux is a problem solver, born to bridge a gap between capturing footage and delivering it,” explained Chris Parsons – Team Videux. “There is the nature videographer who needs to be able to cull and rate footage and keep track of the licenses for clips sold. There is the one-person documentary filmmaker that needs to be able to find key moments in hours of interview footage and then organize clips before sending to the editor. There is the YouTube channel that wants to keep track of what it has done and what it will do next. We designed Videux for these people.”
